brick repointing

The brick on the front of my raised lawn wall needs repointing. It’s a 1923 house with that funky grey stone that looks like mottled teeth which a number of the Wardman style houses in the Columbia Heights East townhomes boast. I don’t know if I can just go to HomeDepot to get some mortar to redo in those spots where it has completely disintegrated, or if I need to hire someone. Suggestions or referrals would be appreciated. Thanks!

My guess is that you can just go to Home Depot and get some muriatic acid for clean-up and then some mortar for the point up. Can be done over the course of 2 days/weekend. It’s a painstaking process, but doesn’t require hiring someone.
